FML: I cross my T’s and dot my I’s

Black Cage Top: Romwe | Skirt: Murua (Actually it’s a dress haha) Lena has the same one!! | Shoes: YesStyle

Please, let us take a moment to acknowledge that this is the first photoshoot I have posted with my natural hair – yes that’s right no curls!  I wonder if it is this aspect that has caused me to feel as if I look very strange in all the photos from this shoot…hmm..

Once again I am featuring an outfit in which none of the items are from Australia.  I don’t know what this could mean other than I don’t like Australian clothing enough to buy it OR the Australian clothing I do like is just too expensive for this almost broke…student? *cough* .

Yes I left my last job in order to put full concentration into searching for a job within my field…and since then I have felt somewhat poor…I miss being able to buy clothes!!! I walked into Forever New the other day..and I loved all the jackets with their awesome embellishments and their awesome dresses and just their overall awesome range this season…and was depressed to be unable to buy anything..

But enough of wallowing in my current lack of monetary affluence…Here is my look this week!

Back View.  I am so glad I bought this black cage top/bodice-top from Romwe.  I bought it a while ago and since then I seriously wear it with everything. It is great with high-waisted shorts, high waisted skirts, it’s perfect for underneath tops, absolutely everything!  And I love its edgy vibe!  Combining this top with my floral dress, which I turned into a skirt for this outfit, gave it an overall edgy look!
These shots show the dress in action.  I love the flowy and light aesthetic of this dress and was getting annoyed that it couldn’t be properly captured within a photo.  BUT the photo above on the right shows this aesthetic perfectly through the shadow! haha.
Whilst I’ve decided to go edgy with this look, when worn as a dress without the cage top, the outfit has a completely diffferent vibe.  As a dress, the vibe is elegance.  In fact the last time I wore this dress was to last years Spring Races in which I paired it with red Mary Jane Pumps and a black ribboned belt around the waist.
I think this dress is really nice and I grew a billion times fonder of it when I found out Lena wore the EXACT same dress in ViVi magazine haha.
Close up of the shoes. These shoes are my highest, yet most comfortable heels. I know, those two words should not be in the same sentence, but it is completely true!!

Hope you enjoyed this look~  Until next time :)

    Stunning, Talyssa! It took quite a bit of hard graft to play Siree’s adorable kittycat shirt off the field, but I think you’ve done it here…

    I’m biased, but I love your straight hair here; the simplicity of your hairdo just works with the complexity of the strappy top, pleated and flowered skirt and the strappy heels.

    The whole look is very fresh and summery; you look crisp and cool, and very elegant. Well played, you!

    Really pretty! I love the top. :) PS: Your natural hair looks really nice! I’ve been trying to keep mine as natural as I can and I felt as though it’s grown!
